I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the community of Tehachapi and the wonderful people who still have ties here and call it home
There were plenty of winners during the Bear Valley Buckaroos 11th Annual Branding Iron Golf Tournament fundraiser at the Oak Tree Country Club in Bear Valley Springs on Saturday, Aug. 2
Kris Haycock, a 2004 Tehachapi High School graduate and Warrior athlete, earned a spot to play in a Home Run Derby with Jose Canseco by competing with approximately 50 other contestants prior to the derby. The Home Run Derby was held at Chuckchansi Park prior to a Fresno Grizzlies game on Aug. 12.
Expectations were high, and the Tehachapi Falcons mite division inline hockey team delivered in Santa Barbara earlier this month.
The new year is upon us -- in college athletics terms that is. The first competitions of 2014-15 open this week for the CSUB Roadrunners and it's time to get back to business.
Tehachapi is a new member of the South Yosemite League (Independence, East, Golden Valley, Ridgeview and West) starting this fall.
The Warriors sounded in the season last Saturday morning at Coy Burnett Field, providing an early morning sneak-peek for the local community on the 2014 version of Mountain Football.
After a season that brought Tehachapi a CIF Division II Central Section championship appearance and an undefeated SEYL title, the central section has taken notice, moving the Lady Warriors to Division I starting this fall.
I've spoken about turnover in this business recently, I mean when you're a small-major NCAA Division I program, your coaching ranks are often pillaged once one becomes successful and another opportunity arises.
So while we have several new head coaches on the roster this year for the Roadrunners, we also have several new assistants on their coaching staffs as well.
In early July, just days after Cal State Bakersfield Athletics Director Jeff Konya announced that he was stepping down to become the Director of Athletics at Oakland University in Rochester, Mich., CSUB named someone with plenty of experience to help oversee operations in the athletic department.
Over the next few weeks, we will break down the Warriors football schedule for 2014.
Since the end of July, the Warriors, Braves and Indians have been working hard in preparation for the upcoming football season.
